The government has confirmed receiving a proposal for a Public-Private Partnership, PPP for the reconstruction of Lundazi Bridge, which was washed away by heavy rains in 2019.
Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Vincent Mwale said that the proposal is from one of the business persons operating in Lundazi district.
Mr. Mwale however, said that the PPP cannot be approved because the government already fully funded the reconstruction of the bridge.
He said that his ministry will advise the businessman, who wanted to assist in the reconstruction to choose another bridge under PPP arrangement.
And Mr. Mwale said that heavy rains have continued to hinder the reconstruction works and that the contractor has decided to work on the bridge when rains subside.
He said that an embankment that was put up by the contractor to guide the water so that works could start was washed away.
Mr. Mwale assured residents of Lundazi and motorists that the bridge, which will be longer and broader according to new designs, will be constructed.
